Recorded Webinar: Modern Day Human Magnesium Requirements: The RDN's Role

Recent studied have shown a significant percentage of the US population is not meeting the recommended intake of magnesium. Nevertheless, magnesium deficiency is often undiagnosed because the health impacts can be very subtle. This webinar will examine the role of magnesium in health and disease.

Leading experts Andrea Rosanoff, PhD, and Stella Lucia Volpe, PhD, RDN, ACSM-CEP, FACSM, will provide an updated review to help RDs better assess clients' magnesium status in relation to age and gender, help clients adjust magnesium intake, and make appropriate recommendations for magnesium supplementation.

The live version of this webinar was presented on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, from 2-3 pm ET, by Andrea Rosanoff, PhD, and Stella Lucia Volpe, PhD, RDN, ACSM-CEP, FACSM. This recorded version is approved for one hour of continuing education credit. RDs should list code 175 for this activity type.
